One of the less glamourous parts of being a new mum or parent, includes dealing with nappy rash. Whilst newborns aren't often affected, most babies will experience nappy rash at some stage. It's generally easily dealt with, but it's a good idea to be prepared and make sure you have a nappy rash lotion to hand for when and if it strikes! Keep reading to find out more about this kind of inflmmation and our top picks for the best nappy rash ointment in 2022.

What is a nappy rash?

As the name suggests, nappy rash is inflammed skin on your baby's bottom and appears red, sore or broken. It occurs when a baby stays in a wet nappy for too long causing chafing against the material of their diaper. Most babies will experience nappy rash sooner or later but some experience it more often than others if they have extra sensitive skin. The key to preventing inflammation is to keep their skin clean and dry as much as possible. Aim to do a nappy change as soon as possible to avoid redness, soreness, and even infection.

When to use nappy rash cream?

If you notice your baby's bottom is red or sore, it's time to call in a nappy rash treatment. Other symptoms include red patches, spots, pimples or blisters on your baby's bottom, or skin that feels hot to touch. A diaper rash cream can be used to provide healing relief to sore skin. Some parents prefer to consistently use this treatment as a barrier cream to help avoid the rash from occuring in the first place.

How to apply nappy rash cream?

Baby rash cream is really easy to use. After removing your child's nappy and cleansing their bottom and genitals with baby wipes you can apply a small amount of the cream rubbing it over their buttocks and between their cheeks if you like. It can also be used on baby boy's scrotum or on girl's labbia if there is irritation there too. Have a read of our article on how to care for nappy rash for more advice.
